NextGen provide you with their take on the epic apes big adventure in New York in this King Kong slot, available to play online, on mobile phone and tablet.
If you are a fan of NextGen slots then you’ll enjoy their graphically enhanced version of this slot game.
Their detailed symbols are all items and characters from the original 1933 film itself, including the big ship, giant spiders, film cameras, ticket stubs, handcuffs, skulls, flying biplanes, dinosaurs, the hero Carl Denham and the blonde damsel in distress Ann Darrow.
All of which come together beautifully on 5 reels and 25 paylines to bring you a complete collection and brief summary of the film, throwing you into a familiar world, even if you don’t know the story.
And that’s not all you will find in this King Kong video slot.
One of the symbols that will help you create more wins during the base game and the free spins is that of the wild.
The wild symbol is, of course, represented by the giant ape himself and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. If however you find one on reel 3 it you will trigger the King Kong Goes Ape feature.
Here, the wild will expands to cover the whole of reel three as you see Kong go ape on out of the screen and climb up the Empire State building adding a little action to your game.
A feature that occurs quite regularly, it does a little more than just expands like in the Crazy Cows slot, or the many others who have this feature.
It usually also provide you with a couple of extra wilds on reel 2 and 4, leading to some easier and sweet 4 and 5 symbol wins.
This feature is your constant companion to skull island and back. That said there is one other features to look out for in this NextGen game, it’s just not that easy to find as you’ll read in a moment.
Harder to catch than the big ape himself, the free spins games in this slot machine are ever elusive.
If you decide your King Kong slot adventure won’t be complete without the free spins, then we advise to budget wisely.
This medium to high variance slot can swallow up your budget if you are not careful, and it can take over 200 – 300 base game spins to trigger them.
Unlike most other NextGen games where you find scatters or bonus symbols anywhere on screen, here you have to get 3 or more of the King Kong logo symbols from the left most to right most reel, taking a leaf from Playtech games instead.
You’ll then get a mini-game, where Kong has to smash airplanes out of the sky. If you miss three the game ends.
Smash 6 and you’ll get the maximum of 150 free spins, whilst 1 smash will only trigger 15 free spins. The most we’ve gotten is 36.
And then there’s a twist, before the free spins start you can choose to either take them or take a mystery cash prize instead.
We prefer to try our luck in the free spins to be honest, but that’s just us. Maybe you just want the prize and don’t want to watch 36 spins in a row.
How much can you win? Well that all depends; theres wins well over 200x your bet hiding here, but on average expect between 30x – 50x as a decent average.
Available to play as the King Kong online or mobile slot, you can play on whichever device takes your fancy.
A decent betting range of 0.25 up to 50.00 per spin offers smaller and bigger betters the chance at a few spins, however, remember to budget if you are looking to trigger those free spin games.
The good news is that free spins isn’t the only way to get big wins – that expanding wild has some decent win too. Just depends on whether you like your slots uncomplicated, but beautiful.
Or perhaps you prefer something with a little more action, in which case we’d also recommend Merlin’s Magic Respins slot by the same provider.
With decent graphics, and some wild animations, we think you’ll enjoy this movie slot as it smashes out of your screen.
